A verse from Leviticus on a poster? That would make a fairly conventional protest against gay marriage.

But this Mississippi pastor brought along a little some extra besides the standard posters and Biblical quotes.

Pastor Edward James went to the federal courthouse in Jackson, Mississippi, on Friday to protest a federal judge's decision to strike down Mississippi's ban on same-sex marriage, the Clarion-Ledger reported.

He brought along his equine companion to make a point, he said, about the sanctity of marriage and the slippery slope that gay marriage poses.

"If we keep going down this road, where's it gonna stop?" James said, saying that once gay marriage is normalized, state-sanctioned bestiality could come next.

The Clarion-Ledger reporter who covered James' story called it one of the "wildest" gay marriages protests he's ever seen.
